Alaska vs. Hudson. 
A. Serious Occident. 
Tbo nm nutcb of tire toarney in wtucb tbe Hadsoas of 
Brook] jn ud tbo Flyaway asd ,41— km dab* of Now York 
bftTe entered In a contest for a mme or 9100 and a eUrer 
ball waa common oed on the union Qronnda. BrooUyn* 
on Oct. 23, the flnt teams to an tar the list being the new 
nines oftbe Hudson and AJaaka CI aba. Tbe weather was 
warm and pleasant, and tbe attendance nomeroas, while 
tbo matcb Itself nroTed to be quite np to tbe Leans or In- 
ternational standard, as tbe score shows. Tbe Hnasone pre- 
■ent«d tho ama taam as plmjwl in tho metropolitan tonr- 
ney. with tbe eoteeptlon of the ubatltailon of Msxslsnd of 
tbe Wltoksj as catcher in tbe plaae ol Joe Farrell. tbe lat- 
ter being 1 finable to play any more, on account or bnatnets. 
The Alaska team, however, was a combination nine, ln- 
eladlng; and H ,tlM " lft T l of tbe Cblcagos, Kent ol 

the Bodsona of Hudson, and others not original Ala&bas, 
bnt lonr of tbo lattsr playing In tbo team. The contest 
was close np to the flith Inning, id which the Alaskan 
made the first ran of the frame, the score stand Lng at 1 to 
0 at the end of that Inning. In the sixth blanks were 
scored by both nines, and in the seventh each sUCed two 
runs to their score, tbe Alaskan still leading, this time by 
3 to 2. In the eighth inning the End nous added a nlngto 
to their score, and, blanslntr their adversaries, tied tbe 
score— 3 to 3. Tbo contest now became qnlte ex- 
citing/, as the play was flrat-class, and each nino was 
doing Its !evel best to win. In tbe ninth toning tho 
Hodsona were disposed of for a blank, and then the 
Alaakas went in to win. Two men were on bsj-ea. 
with one man oat, when Rice bit a high ball to left 
C^ntre-fleld. which R. Smith and ttcCord both ran In 

tor. No call was made for one or the other to take 
tbe bail, or. If It was. It was not heard amidst tbe applause 
following the hit. At any rate. R. Smith had no sooner 
caught the ball than, almost simultaneously. McCord 
collided wtth bun. and. being the shorter man, his 
head struck Smith's Jaw with mco force as to lay 
the flesh open, besides knocking aim senseless, SlcConl 
being so stunned by the shock that he did not know 
what he was about. Taking unfair advantage of the acci- 
dent* Itarkln Tan roand the bases and scored a run, tbe 
umpire not only falling to decide the ball as caught, bnt 
also to call 4 *Ttme, 11 as he should have done the moment 
he saw the accident occur By this means two runs were 
scored which the Alaska* were not morally entitled to, 
tbe umpire failing to discharge bis duty on the occasion. 
The Injured players were removed to their respective 
homes, and temporary substitutes replaced them until the 
lnnlntrn play was finished.

A swore storm prevailed on Oct. 23, nm daring It impos-

Tho last regular game of tbe season at Albany, N. T., 
took piece Oct. 21 betwevn tbe Albany and Providence 
CI aba. One result being tbe defeat of tbe former, poor 

to go over bis bead* giving the Providence two runs, and 
an overthrow by Barn*, with a like remit, doing tbe busi- 
ness for tbe borne nine. Aside from this, it wss a splendid 
game on the nart of tbe Albany*, their fielding being well- 
nigh perfect, and their battlngguerally.thongnnotbeavy, 
was fully equal to that of their opponents In tbe matter of 
sale bits. Hanlon fielded msgniocently, potting ont no 
fewarihan seven men, wnileCritchley and Eeenan played 
their positions tor all they were worth. For tbe visitors. 
Ward's pitching, the first- base play of Human, Brown's 
catching and HLgbam'b baoimr were tbe teatmeB. Qolnton 
and Tobln showed up well at the bat for tbe Albany a, they 
being credited wtth a thrto and a two base hit respectively.

The above nme clooed tho playing then for the season. 
It has been a nlghly successful one. and tbe directors of tbe 
Albany Club have, it la said, a surplus ot five thousand dol- 
lars In their treasury. Conndertng that the club has been 
organized but Little over two months, and that, besides tbe 
expense ot the players. It cost at least 32,000 to put tbe 
Bounds In order, this result la very ssilsfactory, and proves 
that baseball properly managed la a popular and profitable 
amusement In Albany. Additional Improvements will be 
made in tbe grounds be fore next season opens. The entire 
share ol tbe Albany Club In the game ot Oct. 21, amounting 
to nearly three hundred dollars, was, through tbo kindness 
of the directors, divided among tho players. The follow- 
ing have signed for next year : ©rltchley, Keenan, Tobln.

The best baseball dty of the West, after tnrae year* of 
. DaDeeeaafnl experiment In iiiisesilMii.l i lull niaiiamniHiiil. 
has at last taken the right path again, as lniaDaod'69. 
On Oct. 16 ins Cincinnati CInb team of 1878 ended its 
caner, and, alike la Its club management and Its fine play- 
ing. It has closed the next best season to the celebrated 

champion campaign of 1889. Tbe elnb officers of tbe pres- 
ent organization havs honorably discharged an their 
obligating, to their player* and thepnblic; and stand* 

lag Ont as the champion dnb of the west, snd second In 
the season's pennant contest, In the honest play oT their 
team, their skillful fielding, and in the creditable 
features of their elnb management daring 1878, they 
rank with the best In tbe lieagne arena. No sooner 
Is the dlabandment of the pala-off team of 1878 an* 
nonnced than the new team lor 1879 springs Into ex- 
Istence, snd, as officially stated, It is to be the strongest 
the Clncunatl CInb has erer placed In tbe field. In tbe 
flnt place It is a team— for the first time since 1869— which 
has no cliques or rival elements In It to mar Its harmo- 
nlooa working together. Beeondly, It la a team for once 
a eleftert more for their playing together for the aide, and 
for their fielding skill Id home posltlons.than for "splendid 
battlnv." Thirdly, It Is a team which lnclodes a majority 
of Its players who haro worked together for Mveral sea- 
sons; and lastly. It la a team which now baa a more com- 
petent manager at Its head— James White— than It has 
had sines tbe dob was reorganized, some three yean ago. 
Aocordlmr to the official announcement of tbe player* ot 
1379 and their positions, more than ordinary Jadc-mont has 
been exercised' In tbe placing of the nine as follows: Jsa 
White, c ; Will White, p. ; llcVey. 1st b. ; Barnes, 2d b. ; 
Gerhard t, Sdb.; Borke. a a; Dickenon, I. C; Hotallng, 
c t ; Kelly, r. f. : with Foley and Sullivan as substltntea. 

We nereraaw Burke, Kelly, Dickenon or SalUvan play, 
and therefore we cannot comment on them except by re- 
port, and that from all sources is excellent, both as re- 
gards character and skill In tbe field. But the other, we 
know, and we can apeak of these "by the card." The 
White brothen have proved themselves to be the equals 
ol the best rarrhlng and pltcblna pair who have ever 
played in a league nine together, and, with the increased 
field support they will have Lu 1879, If they do not head 
the list In the pennant race next year we ah all be rather 
surprised. Harry Wright, tough as be will find things In 
Providence In 1879, will find his hardest task to win when 
facing tbe new Cincinnati nine. hfcVey has been placed 
In the beat position possible for him— be Is at home on 
flrat-beae. as ho Is In no other position, with bis 
old companion, Boston Boss Barnes, at second, and 
"reliable James" behind the bat, this trio should be 
the strength of the Cincinnati Infield. Oerbardt has 
turned ont to ha the player we said some years ago 
be would be. He can play third bass ss well ss sec- 
ond, and he will gnatly strengthen what was a rather 
weak place In the team of 1878. Burke Is reputed to be a 
aeeood George Wright at abort field, and, as he played the 

BialUonnnder Barnes this season, be will be at borne there, 
otallnjr Is a fine player, a flrst-clasa ontnelder, and an ex- 
cellent cDaDRs-oatoDer. Dlcieraon and Kelly are spoken 
of as "good and true men," and admirably suited for the 
position, aamgned them : while young Foley stands ready 
to fill the place of a disabled third-baseman or catcher. It 
Is scarcely worth while to place each a One nrat-baaeman 
ss SalllvsB Is said to be In the reserve corps; It would 
be better to let him strengthen some other team. If a 
change-pitcher is required, they can aval] themselves of 
Mover's servlcea Ol the hatting strength of the team we 
cannot speak st present At any rate, that Is of secondary 
importance to their strength as fielder* and ba se runner*, 
and especially to their strength In "playing for the side." 
Cincinnati has had costly experience of the folly ot select- 
ing their clob team each season on the basis or a player's 
batting record. They nave grown wiser by the lessons, 
and now make that the secondary consideration In their 
estimate. With sound management, a determination to 
InaUt upon honest play, and with the beat team the club 
have yet bad, the season of 1879 can be looked forward to 
by Cincinnati with confidence of ancceav. 

A very flue amateur game was played in Warren. Pa, 
Oct. 16, between the Warrens snd the Uutnsls of Corry. 
Tbe home nine employ a professional pitcher. Smith of 
Buffalo, which strengthens tliem considerably. Tho field- 
ing of both nines was Tory good and abont equal, but the 
Warrens outbatted the visiters

sirous of retrieving the past by (rood deeds In the future. 
We refer to this suhlsct In connection with the Providence 
Club, because we baveiuet heard that Gecnwe Wright and 
Manager Morrow of that dub have concluded to give 
McGeary, of the old Pblladelpbla nine of the days of 
Philadelphia "Mutualism," a trial Is their nine of 
1679. The wisdom or this course remains to be tasted by 
experience. McOeary baa undoubtedly seen the folly of 
not making a reputable name tbe chief aim of bis profes- 
sional career. He Is a married man now. Is well off snd 
seeks to regain his lost prestige. There has never been 
any question of hla ability ss a player ; his services would 
this season nave been at a premium In League nines, had 
he been called. At any rate, George Wright has determined 
to give McOesry a chance, and he has therefore engaged 
him to play ataecond base in bis new nine. Dick Blgbam 
ha9played like a trump this past season, and no doubt 
McGeary will do likewise next year. 

themselves JlAd been pat oat for 49. The war 
tells were mnllM and catches wore missed was 
anfflolent to have driven Brewster crazy, the 
veteran doing the bowling at one end. The si- 
leged ball-players went In first, and all bnt Brew- 
ster were easily disposed of for dock-eggs and 
small single figures, Moer&n and Sontter baring 

aolte a soft thing of it In bowling them ont. Then 
le eleven went in, and before the eeoond wloket 
fell 62 runs had been scored. The men who floored 
double, figures were all being caught 

In the Held, Hoernn giving two ">""'"«« and Blelgh 
two, Sontter also being let off easy. Ouddlhy 
made two One catches, and fielded np to a high 
mark. Levhey, Hadley and UoDermott also cap- 
tured fly hails in good style, and Lawlor made a 
good catch off his own bowling, he taking a 
majority of wickets. Though there was plenty 
ot very bad cricket, there was lots ot fun, and 
the game was fully enjoyed by all who partici- 
pated in It. Old BUI Crosaley acted as umpire 
or the cricketers, and It looked natural to see 
the veteran on the field again. In the second inn- 
ing of the Brewster team they lost nine wickets 
for 66 runs, Brewster making 24, Mlddleton 10, 
and EauaUag a good 8. Darkness then stopped 
play, the first inning given below deciding the

A LOHa BXDX, — From r*e rinnrn. Spartxwut* we 
I earn that Captain Salvl aooompllahed the feat ot 
riding from Bergamo, in Lombardy, to Naples, 
900 kilometres, or nearly 680 English miles. In ten 
days. The task was performed on Ledo, a Sar- 
dinian more, whose grandalre was a pure Arab. 
She stands a little over 14X hands, and is said to 
be about aeven years old, gray, with an Arab fore- 
head and very plain hindquarters. The last 
stage, from Osserta to Naples, was ridden not 
without the greatest dlBculty, the gallant little 
mare being distressed beyond measure. On ar- 
riving within the precincts of the city, wlth-bavlf 
an hour to spare, she was unable to move on Inch 
farther, and could not proceed to the cavalry 
barracks, as had been arranged. She had to be 
put up at the nearest stable, where She lay down 
dead beat, trembling all over and refusing food 
and water. Thanks, however, to the care be- 
stowed upon her, she was comparatively ail right 
again the following day. Captain Salvl started 
from Bergamo on Sept. 23d at ten A. sl, »wri ar- 
rived at Naples on Oct. 3d at halt-past nine A. 
M. Previous to starting he made a bet of S.OOOf. 
to do the distance in ten days. 

Edwin Fobbzst, the famous trotting sire, and 
the direct ancestor ot Green's "trltthrstpd trotter 
ot the same name, was burned to death on the 
occasion of the destruction ot the stable and stock 
barn ot his owner, O. W. Ferguson, at MarBhall- 
town, Iowa, Oct. 19. Ot the twenty odd stallions 
and broodmares which were In the buildings, 
Noroross* Manchester and Sample's Edwin For- 
rest Jr. (formerly HlllBdaJe Chief) were the only 
ones saved. Edwin Forrest was foaled in Oneida, 
County, N. Y., in 1851, and was by Bay Kentnaky 
Hunter, dam by Watklns' Young Highlander. 
Ee was subsequently purchased by B. A. Alexan- 
aer ot Kentucky.

finished two lengths ahead ot Plevna, who hod 
deprived Btartle ot second place after passing 
the half-mUe pole, and beat him out five 
lengths, Rochester two lengths In the rear 

of Htartle. Time, 1:48V The Compensation 

Purse, $400 to first, $60 to second, mile beats, had 
four starters, with Warfleld for first choice— a se- 
lection which proved disastrous to his backers, 
for, though he won the first beat by a bead from 
jLonianler, the latter captured the two following 
heats with ease by three and sight lengths re-, 
spectlvely. Warfleld second In each. Time, 1 .-46V. 
1 :46V, 1 :<8 The concluding race of the attar- 
noon was a steeplechsse, $600 to first, $100 to sec- 
ond. $60 to third, welter-weights, two miles and a

Tbere were vaxloae Infldencea at work dorlnfr

politan entertainments and pnaaes ot great nu- 
Ynec Interests. Prominent and most potent or oil 
I« Us effect on our reaTUlAT places ot amnsemnnt 
may be mentioned the great Cathedral Fair,

wMcb; up to' BatordAJ night lnoluslro, hod been la compnted, by eerenty thouaajad per-

eeets were drawn away from the theatres, the 
opera, and other permanent houses ot public 
neort. The lalrls a great bucwbs, and the fair 
ones with the golden and other lodes who are to 
•as seen In attendance at the different bazars 
wnich go to make a grand display or art and the 
Industrie* ot the world are by bo means the least 
at-ractlve ot the beautiful teaturee ot the 
CatSsdral exhibit. It la estimated I that on 
Bat irday evening last the attendance attained the 
muaeaal proportions ot fltteen thousand, and "the 
EreeTllat totally enspended." Bo those managers 
whTrtwedSe scanty a«endance at theLrovra

shrinkage in business, and the corresponding 
-rli^toeea In Ore financial department. There can

S^echrinb exhibition sadly Interfered with 

5£lt7icai and kindred performances, rortte poet 
week was an off "Tin with several uptown eatal>- 
Ushmenta. While "Two Orphans" are forecast In 

the down- town region of the Bowery slope 

Our usual loy area turned Into deep sorrow one 
day during the past week In having our atwnUon 
called to the details ot a hostile encounter be- 
tween a dramatic critic and an active agent jreei- 
dent In this dty. "We" eeem to have been reek- 
leealy maltreated by the Inhnmsn agent. Who 
plasted his dexter and sinister mawleje all over 
our exposed and defenseless frontispiece, and 
made It Impossible tor us to appear before the 
object of our adoration for three eeveral rJghtB, 
raw oystere and eqoally raw beet being J^]^ 
upon to allay the smarts and stings of an Injure* 
diaphragm while we were In en forced retirement. 
It Is Shrewdly euxmlsod that other than 
the pernicious agent had a band or two In 
the assault upon us, and tblsaad recital of a prue 
encounter between gentlemen ot an cesthetlo 
turn ot mind fills ua with mordfltaaon aaddls- 
trott Those whose province It Is to "hold the 
mirror up to nature," and whose mission la peace 
amd rood-will to men outside ot the pale ot the 
critical world, feel very sore over the r»ultof 
this entente, and have caused the wicked trxe- 
paeaer upon their inalienable rtghta to roxTjl&h 

ban u answer at conrt We hive received a, 

tender piece ol poetry dedicated to one of the ex- 
latlng female operatic vocalists, and we should 
be pleased to give It a place In our wldely-drcu- 
saled Journal were It not that the gentle compos- 
er. In his enthusiasm, alleges that the timbre Of 
her high notes la like unto that of the clarionet, 
while the depths ot her magnificent organ are 
only equaled by the low and reverberating tones

wise the lines are or a far higher order than those

Yes, It was kind in atr. BUM to volunteer his 

services for Genevieve Ward'a benefit. A gentle- 
man who has scored as many buu s-eyea and cen- 
tres as he has ooght to make a hit without much 
exertion. And then . Aratira air. Bird played

[» This is very good as It stands, but It would be 
better It the Duke's name In "The Honeymoon" 
were Arenza (a- wren-sir) Instead ot Aranxa. Bow- 
ever, It la no fault of ours that the name falls to 
meet the exigencies of the case. The pun Is all 
right, and that la as tar as our responsibility ex- 
tends — ED.] Although we have been bereft of 

Theodore Thomas, have we not gained a more 
Aptommaa In the genial harpist who Is to give us 
a musical lecture to-morrow evening? And we 
would add that, while you listen to the sweet and 
mellifluous strains he evokes from his wiry In- 
strument, you might Imagine that "he played on

In good season. Let us be thanktul for what has

or will one be eventually called upbxt to assist the 

other ? The jreat storm ot * Oct. 33 showed 

what we an capable of la the way of natural 
vratex-effects. And so, emulating the outside ex- 
hibit on that day, Barnum's "Greatest Bhowou 
Earth" baa developed a real Lake, while Nlblo'a

great dlfaoulty In getting above the tint round in 
his great ladder feat, now eatt backvxrrd — that Is. 
he begins at the last dish In his dinner bill ot

a weary lite While Nlblo'a Garden seems to 

be revivifying under the genial rays of— genial 
rays— while the genial rays of— any how. while 
the old dramatic temple la on the up-grade once 
more, that other establishment farther down 
Broadway— and belonging to the same estate — 
Btewart'e wholesale drygoods store, at Chambers 
street— is soon to be "left," and the trade thereof, 
at least what Is left ot It, Is to be transferred to 
the uptown house. It the ground was not en- 
cumbered by euch a colossal structure, the elte 
would answer very well for a circus for a stand 
of a few days: but we fear that the limbs of the 
law will take poegeaalon of the building with the 

retirement of the House ot Stewart we must 

have Call eu -upon evil times when even the giants 
of our age an subjected to robbery. There was 
Barnum's big man, for example. He had laid np 
his treasures where thieves break through and 
steal— viz.. New Jersey— and he might have lost 
all his jewels and plate It the burglars had not 
been captured. The giant, whose everyday name 
IS John Bass, will not stand this sort ot thing 
much longer. That thought inspires us to sing :

....And talking abont circuses, "Our Jim" la not 
very well pleased with Lotta In her new play of 
"La Ci gale." It seems that the boy took her In 
on Saturday night, and he says that Charlotte Is 
like everybody else when they get up In the world : 
lor, while she was good enough to take up with the 
circus people when she was poor, and hadn't even 
a cellar-door to shelter her, and found pleasure 
In tbe society of the clown and Herculee, and the 
lightning calculator and other sym pathetic show 
people, just so soon as she finds herself an heiress 
and a dukess, she fll«a her klteas high as the un- 
finished Brooklyn Bridge, goes back on her old 
show friends, and shakes the sawdust from her 
dainty little feet- Heretofore, Jim has been an 
ardent admirer of Charlotte, and has even gone so 
far as to send her chewing-gum and verses to 
match; but her conduct last Saturday night 
opened his eyes to her perfidy, and he shakes her 
like an aspen leaf. No more gum-drops for her, 
no more fig-paste, no more bolivars, no more 
tender lines of beautiful poetry. We. endeav- 
ored to expostulate with the vicious troy, ana 
explain to him that the motive of ifce play 
compelled her to act as she did ; but he wouldn't 
have It, "What I seen I seen, and, it that's

Bomebody should be getting ready to recite

body la at liberty to use It We have received 
thousands of letters from all parts of the world 
asking It tse did not write that poem. We are not

ticularly a fresh one entitled '■Grandmother's

Dearly two yean, were cordially received, and 
their aongs-and- dances and eccentricities aroused 
their old-time enthusiasm; Mackim and Bryant, 
in neat Irish songs-and-dances, including "Ire- 
land's Farewell" and "The Barneys," were com- 
mendable. In addition to these, who were tho 
fresh Bppearancee, Johnny ^Bhay performed in

AT Booth's Thbatbe Jarrett A Palmer's dram- 
atlo season terminated Oct. 2S. "Macbeth" waa, 
acted 91, 93, 23, and "Jane Shore," which was re- 
vived 34, ran the rest ot the week, "The Honey- 
moon," with John H. Bird (a volunteer) as the 
Duke Aranxa and Miss Ward as Juliana, being 
added on the night of 35 for that lady's -farewell 
benefit, George Yandenhoff, who was oast tor 
Macbeth, was unable to appear owing to lllneas, 
a physician's certiadate to that effect being print- 
ed In the house-buta. Mllnes Levlck was substi- 
tuted. J. B. Grlsmer acted Macduff 31, but was 
rerlaoed by James H. Taylor 22, 28. Generlnve 
Ward's conception ot Lady Macbettvwas like that 
of the late Charlotte Onshmmh. While tbe 
methods she used - In depicting ttso character 
evinced tbat she had been a- chase erttsdont. her 
portrayal as a whole was not —suram. - -Mllnes 
Leviok's Macbeth was an agreeable. Aurprlse. It 
was evenly snd consistently at the 
close of the tragedy, whence was evidently some- 
what disconcerted by the gentleman acting Mao- 
duff. His reading was - forcible and intelli- 
gent, and bore traces of thoughtful study. 
He excelled In delineating Macbetb's terror and 
sudden changes ot feeling, and particularly was 
this noticeable In the banquet-scene, wherein he 
was weHnlgh perfect. James H. Taylor's de- 
livery wae monotonous, and at times Indistinct, 
while at others he exhibited an uncertainty in 
the knowledge of the text which caused him to 
halt and stammer. J. L. Carhart is to be praised 
for a thoroughly good Impersonation ot King 
Duncan. Frank Little was hardly up to the re- 
quired standard as Malcolm. John Swinburne's 
Banquo waa creditable, and a marked Improve- 
ment upon aome of hla previous efforts. Bosse 
by Frank Kllday and Lennox by W. Betlhamer 
were respectably acted. Harry Rich. H. C. Her- 
bert and Mrs. Mattnewson were the three witches ; 
Andrew Jacques, Sexton; B. C. Wheeler, the 
Wounded Officer: James Lawrence, the Physician; 
Little Lisle Leigh, Usance; and Mrs. J. H. Howe, 
Gentlewoman, all erxhlbltlng care and attontton. 

Netthxh TEafPxsrs nor political excitement 
seems to prevent crowds ot people from assem- 
bling nightly to enjoy the pleasing entertainments 
provided by the San Francisco Minstrels. Last 
week the only changes made in the programme 
were a fresh finale to the first part, comprising 
airs from "Evangeline." "Dan ring In the Barn," 
"Lullaby," and "The Gentlemen Coons' Parade," 
and In the olio a song-snd-dance styled "Troublo 
In de Family." performed by Johnson and Pow- 
ers, and "What Would Mamma Say?" and other 
songs by nicsardo the male soprano. 

"Tax- DKntyg." — Nlblo's Garden was filled In 
every part last week, and on several nights late- 
comers were unable to find accommodation. On 
Oct. 31 the spectacular drama of "The Deluge" 
was revived, under the personal supervision of 
the Klralfy Brothers. The scenery used was that 
painted by Voaajtlin when this spectacle was pro- 
duced in Ban Francisco, Cal., and lt Is ot the most 
magnificent deeurlptlon. The dresses, properties 
and appointments were gorgeous. During the 
fourth acta baUet called "The Daughters of Eve" 
waa danced by an efficient corps led by Mile. 
De Rosa, whose agile and graceful movements 
were frequently applauded. Tho cast as a whole 
may be pronounced better than that on the 
occasion of Its original production In this theatre. 
Cbarlea Pope played Satan : Frank Roche, Adam 
and Japhet; F. A. TannehlU, Cain and Jubal: 
Blanche Mortimer, Abel ; Blmcoe Lee, Ohomoe and

and Death; the numerous minor ports being In

Emka Lakx made her first appearance In this 
city at Barnum's Great Show, in GUmore's Gar- 
den, Oct. 31, riding a manege act. Endowed by 
nature with a pretty lace and a trim, lithe figure, 
she presents a graceful picture oe she eaters the 
arena sitting ' .upon her thoroughbred steed. 
Under ber skillful guidance, her horse moves 
through a polka and a waltz: assumes aetatueeque 
position by plaolng one of his forefeet upon a lit- 
tle pedestal, while the other rests upon the top of 
an upright column; leape tlirec high hurdlos 
placed at on, ol distant points In the arena, and 
then makes some wonderful successive bounds 
over tbe three 'smaller hurdles placed In closo 
proximity to one another. Alter giving an exhi- 
bition ot rapid riding, ahe caused her hone to leap 
over a very wtHe "bannor," and, just before 
making her exit, to stand erect upon Its hind- 
feet and walk across the Inclosure while she 
maintained, her seat with apparent ease. A 
torrent of applause recalled her, when she 
repeated the feat last named amid lncreasod 
enthuslssm. Her success was complete. Sho Is 
the daughter ot the late William Lake, a well- 
known enroue-manager, and her mother, Agnes, 
was for many years before the publio aa a dash- 
ing and grace fui rider, in private lite she la the 
wile of Gli. Robinson, a son of John Robinson 
ot Cincinnati, O.. the oldest circus-manager In 
this country, being now 7-1 years of age. The 
only other fresh appearance was David Oastello, 
who In a principal equestrian act secured the 
approbation of ' tbe spectators. Carl Antony, 
tne exhibitor and trainer ot tho perform- 
ing horses, waa unable to appear, having se- 
verely injured one of his eyes by cutting lt 
accidentally with the lash of his whip. P. T. 
Baraum appeared In the arena afternoon and 
night of Oct. M, and addressed thoso present. 
The programme also Included the trained stal- 
lions Mameluke and Pasha; tumbling by tbo 
company; dancing table and globes by W. o. 
Dale Stevens: trauexe act. and later a comical act 
bytheMlaco Brothers : Bevea tableau stallions; 
Mile. Vellclec the lady with the Iron Jaw ; eee- 
r ponies; Linda Jeal In a hurdle-act, and Katie 
Stokes in a principal act, both leaping through 
large circles ot Are: Ernest Patrlzle In his feat ot 
catching a cannon-ball fired from a.fleldplece: 
battoute leaping by the company over elephants ; 
the MettotSrutaecra Id suwmbatlo reals? Charles w. 
Ttsh 1st -yils attrartivo principal act; twelve royal 
stallions In a variety of feats; and tho comic mule 
for the wind-up. The attendance was good, 
though not ao large as during the opening week. 

"LA ClOALE" was acted for the Orat timo in 
this city Oct. 36, at the Park Theatre, whan Lotta 
began an engagement. It la an adaptation, in 
three acts, by Olive Logan, of a French dramatic 
trine by II M. Mellhac and Halevy, and waa acted 
with the following cast: La Clgale, afterwards 
known aa Leila Do La tour, Lotta: Marlgnan, 
an artist, Frederick Bobloson: Mlchu, his com- 
panion, F. Bennett; Count De Hoppe, Jamos 
Dunn ; Edgar, Viscount De Hoppe, Clement 
D. Balnbrldge: Carcasonne, Manager and Clown 
of the Imperial Clrcns, Ed. Marblo: BI-BI, 
Hercules of the Imperial Circus, H, B. Brad- 
ley; Flloche, Lightning-calculator of the Im- 
perial Circus. Frederick Percy; Mona Duclore, 
W. H. Wallls; Turlo, landlord, J. P. Cooko: 
Lege, Master Cooke: Servant to the Count- 
ess, Mr. Parker: Peter, Mr. Whlto; Oountesi 
De Latour, Mrs, Charles Poole; Adele, a Paris- 
tan coquette, afterwards a model. Miss Ag- 
nes Proctor: Ko. C, Miss Cameron; No. T, Miss 
Doyle. The dialogue la not particularly bril- 
liant or well written, and, at times, lt de- 
scends to coarseness. With tbe exception of La 
Ctgalo and Marlgnan, the characters are mere 
sketches. Two new scenes had been painted by 
George Helster— one representing the Interior of 
an old Inn at Fontalnebleau, which stood during 
the first act, and the other, Marignan's studio, 
which occupied the stage through the last act, 
both reflecting credit on the sxtisL As we pub- 
lished the story ot the plot shortly after the orig- 
inal production of the piece, lt need not now be 
repeated. The performance passed oft very 
am<iothly.the action moving with celerity and the 
various performers appearing at ease In their 
respective roles, the reason being that the piece 
bad been previously performed a number of 
titnee In adjacent towns and cities. This dram- 
atic sketch Is well adapted to display Lotra'a 
artistlo Idlosyncraclee, and she romped. Bong 
and danced with delicious abandon. She jumped 
Upon the tops ol tables, spun platee. Juggled with 
bolls of wonted, danced the cancan with Vis- 
count De Hoppe, sang a medley of opera- 
house and popular songs, and displayed agil- 
ity in grotosque dances with Carcasonne; also 
'played the banjo. Marlgnan, although tbe 
part was unworthy of the artist, was ex- 
cellently well acted by Frederick Robinson. 
The character of Mlohu .Is not clearly de- 
fined by the text, and, aa Mr. Bennett failed to 
Invest lt with any peculiarly marked 
became a nonentity. James Dunn discharged 
the slight duties required ot him aa Count De 
Hoppe with gentlemanly ease. Edgar was quite 
creditably acted by 0. D. Balnbrldge, and we 
think bis performances would bave been far 
more effective had he refrained from Imitating E. 
A. Bo them at times. He gives Indications of the 
possession ot genuine ability, and should aim at 
originality. The three cirens-performera, Car- 
casonne (os clown), Bl-BI and Flloche, were so 
admirably made up and well acted by Ed. Marble, 
H. B. Bradley and Fred Percy respectively, that, 
although they were seen only at Intervals, they 
became ot no mean Importance. Mr. Marble had 

further opportunity daring the second act 

when he meets clgale as Leila De Latour, the 
wealthy heiress ot the Oonntess ot that name- 
to display his abllttlai as a vocalist and a dancer, 
which won favorable recognition from the au- 
dience. W. H. Wauls acted the lawyer Hons. 
Duclore, who had been commissioned by the 
Countess De Latour to ascertain the whereabouts 
ox-Mr missing niece— traveling with some olrcus 
— w ith becoming gravity and dignity. Mrs. Ohas. 
IMsoTaA the Countess displayed taste In her cos- 
tume, and in manner was ladylike and reserved. 
Miss Agnes Prre or did the beet ahe could with the 
bad part of Adele, and the other characters re- 
ceived satisfactory treatment On Saturday night 
Charles Christrup and bis entire orchestra, lately 
performing In Booth's Theatre, began a season's 
engagement here. Arthur Bent's cornet-solos 
during the evening proved an agreeable feat- 
ure. The house was crowded, and "La Clgale" 
seems destined to have a run, as lt will evi- 
dently please those who go to theatres simply 
tone amused. No matinees will be given during 
Lotta's engagement. "Old Love-letters" was re- 
peated until Saturday, and was followed by 
"Baby" Oct. 31, 21, 35, and "Champagne and 
Oysters" 23, 33, the cast being as follows : God- 
frey Oraliame, James .Lewis; Iohabod Herring. 
F. Hardenberg: Leander Thombuck, 3. E. Whit-

itan debut as an t^gitab.srpi»aa-in(r actress, m the 
Broadway Theatre. Oot. 31, in "Messallna," a 
historical drama In five acts, which, was castas 
follows: Valeria Messallna. Von Stamwllz: Mar- 
cus. J. Wheelock: Colas 8111ns, O. H. Barr; Nar- 
cissus. M. V. Lingham; Declus Calpurnlanus, W.

Slave, 0. F. Merlghl; Arrla. Mrs. J. L. Oarbart; 
Julio, Mies Jessie Randolph ; Qloucka, Mies Kel- 
logg. The work of translating the drama 
from the German original haa not been effect- 
ively accomplished. We much doubt lt any 
piece founded upon incidents in this noto- 
rious woman's career would prove suoeeestul 
with the general publio. and we can to mind 
tbat In the past Miss J. M. Davenport aoted 
In a similar drama entitled "Valeria," writ- 
ten by Epcs Bargent .of Boston, Mass., in which 
she Impersonated the title - role, as well as 
that of Lyclsca, a character the Roman Empress 
assumed during those hours ot her life which 
were devoted to questionable practices. It foiled 
to attain the success hoped for, although written 
In admirable language and abounding In effect- 
ive situations. The piece at the Broadway was 
well mounted, snd a number ot auxiliaries, male 
and female, had been engaged to give due effect 
to the pageantry, which Is no Inconsiderable fea- 
ture. Von Stamwllz Is ot the Veatvall and Jau- 
auschek schools, and possesses much of the 
beauty ot face and figure of the former, and no 
little of the Intensity in expressing various emo- 
tions ot the latter. Her pronunciation and 
emphasis of our language are faulty, and 
lt Is evident tbat she labors under the seri- 
ous drawback ot being compelled to think 
In one language and to give expression to 
those thoughts In another. She has achieved 
no slight success upon the German stage, and 
evinces tbe possession of abilities whtoh will with 
future study and practice no doubt secure her 
the fruition of her present wishes. On the open- 
ing night she suffered greatly from nervousness, 
and her acting did not appear to so much advan- 
tage os lt did later in the week, when she was 
freely applauded, and several times called be- 
fore the curtain. J. F. Wheelock as Marcos had 
so peculiar a part to Impersonate that, although 
we have hitherto published a synopsis of tbe 
story of the plot of the drama, we may be par- 
doned for repeating, in other language and after 
the style ot tbe police-court reporter, such por- 
tions as will describe that'eharacter. One night, 
when Meesallna was "cruising" in the etreets ot 
Borne, she meets Marcus, and, being impressed 
by his physical beauty, "picks blm up." Later 
ehe causes her confidential slave, Glouoka, to 
bring him by a secret passage into the palace, 
and she places htm at some distance rrom her 
while she contemplates and eulogises his manly 
beauty. She succeeds In leading him from 
the paths ot rectitude; and subsequently, while 
they are In soft dalliance In a pavilion In the 
palace styled the "Temple ot Venus," on enomy 
of Messallna brings Arris, the motherof Marcus, 
thither, with the Intention of surprising them. 
Although Arrla does not gain admission to the 
apartments, her son hears her volco, and' knows 
that he has been betrayed. In the gray dawn of 
morning, when Marcus returns to his own apart- 
ments, he finds his mother In bis bedchamber. 
Sho discards and curses him, and Informs him 
that the only way to preserve hla honor and that 
of the family is to die. Marcus resolves to com- 
mit suicide, and asks his mother for hor ring, 
which contains o subtle poison. She, woman-like, 
when she finds he Is about to follow her advice, 
begs and entreats him not to do so; but he 
Bnatchee the ring from her finger, swallows the 
poison, and dies at her feet. It Is fortunate for the 
gallants of our period that the oustoms which 
prevailed In society In Borne A. D. 18 bave been 
changed, otherwise wo fear their numbers would 
be sadly depleted. Mr. Wheelock did the best he 
could with a character which would have been a 
very strong one had lt been adapted to and acted 
by one ot the opposite sex. There was but little 
opportunity for tho display of signal ability In 
the other main characters. Arrla was the next In 
Importance alter Messallna, and was played vig- 
orously and with discrimination by Mrs. J. L. 
Carhart, who fairly dlvldod the honors with the 
star In several Important scenes, and won a de- 
served call beforo the our tain. Business was only 
fair during the week. 

A new THEATTiE is being built upon the slto ot

Alle SAsIEB as 'Melican M En— The Chinese as 
a race have ever been credited with rjc-eaesslng 
raro Imitative powers, which enable them to re- 
produce and duplicate intricate and delicate ma- 
chinery, etc, and many of those in Ban Francisco, 
Cal., have used these powers in becoming civil- 
ized, though they seem to have been eomewhat 
unfortunate In selecting the hoodlum element of 
that city as their models. Recently a boneflt was 
given In the Chinese Theatre there on Saturday 
night, and It was announced that the show would 
run until two o'clock Sunday morning. About 
eighteen hundred Chinamen attended, and every- 
thing went off very well until one o'clock, when 
Ofllcer Brown walked Into the theatre and at- 
tempted to enforce the ordinance which requires 
that theatres shall close at that hour. The ofllcer 
rapped on the back ot a bench, and exclaimed In 
stentorian voice that "the Chinese must go," 
but the Chinese would not budge. He then 
went behind the scenes and drove the asjors and 
musicians from tbe stage. As bedtd tbls tho 
audience raised tho cry of "Tah, Klve Lah," 
which means "strike blm." Some of the audience 
mode for tbe stage, probably with the Intention 
of striking the officer: but the arrival of rein- 
forcements and the exhibition of firearms caused 
the advancing party to retreat. The audience 
then began tearing up the benches and every- 
thing movable In the premises, destroying the 
some. They also hurled missiles at the officers 
on the stage, and then tore down the doors, which 
they usod as bottering-rams to demolish the box- 
offlco. The proprietors of the theatre will be re- 
quired to" ' 1 at least 5800 to repair tbe dam- 
age done, yvhue the riot was In progress some 
special officer--, •.a.--^- -1 up and fired soveral shots 
over the crowd- -v?- '- ^caused It to disperse. On 
Goon, while '■ ■" act ot demolishing a bench, 
was arrestev. iockt 1 up for malicious mischief, 
and oonv1cte4 la the police -court ofthe offense.

that, notwithstanding his conduct, she might 
still try to think kindly of him ; and heolosed 
with the assurance that his affection for her 
was still unaltered, and would end only with 
his life. ^ 

The same mall brought a fetter from the cap- 
tain's hand to his friend Bavenswood, whioh 
that gentleman showed freely to the curious at 
Potter's Bflliard-rooms and elsewhere. It was 
not written In low spirits, bat rather In a sort 
of good-humored defiance of fate and all her 
machinations. He had played the sooundrel, 
he supposed some people thought and-at the 
present stage his own mere words could hot 
be offered In defense; 'but, as In Hiss Thur- 
low*s letter, he Indicated that time would show 
his onaracter In a better light and be his iusti 
floatlon. ' • ' 

Both these letters were dated from New 
York. He did not appear to be under the ne- 
cessity of keeping dark, at least; en the oon- 
trary, he spent most of his time in pnbilo 
places, parUonlarly the theatres, and the latter 
part of nls communication contained a great 
deal of the current theatrical gossip, soon as 
he thought might amuse his friend. 

Bavenswood, whose temper had not im- 
proved lately, sneered at the letter and spoke 
with anything but respect of its writer. 

"A poltroon, sir," he said to little Billy Glan- 
ders at the billiard-room, after the performance 
oh the night following the arrival of the mis- 
sive. "A gentleman would not have acted bo." 

. He addressed the crowd In general, rather 
than little Billy, and they heard him with great 
respect, as he lounged by the fire, splendid and 
proud and lU-humored. He did not often show 
himself there, and was usually taciturn 
enough. They agreed with htm. Deddlngton 
was a chivalrous plaoe, and Its people as of 
one famfly,-and tbey resented Ulas Thorlow's 
Injury with/honest warmth. 

Bavenswood talked a great deal that night, 
and In a way made t»imn»if agreeable. ' It was 
late when he withdrew, and even then he did 
not go to his lodgings, bat rambled about the 
streets, quite alone, for half an hour, and then 
strnok off into the oountry, and I dont think 
there was a soul awake In the town when' he 
oame back. Mrs. Dobbles was so accustomed 
to bis whimsical comings and goings that 
hardly any noise he might have made could 
have awakened her. Bo when, about two or 
three o'clock— or who knows what time?— he 
let himself in with his latchkey and ascended 
to his room, he did not disturb her. Pale and 
fatigued he looked, in the light of his lamp, as 
he entered the room, and wearilv but kindly 
he spoke In answer to the greeting of his little 
dog: and so threw hlmseiflnto a ohalr before 
the fire and mused dismally. 

"Tired to death, curse it 1" he said, with a 
light thump on the table. "What a fool I have 
been I Do I know what I am doing? Was 
there ever such a mad piece of business in all 
the world 1" 

And so on. Incoherently, he soliloquized, 
with an sorts of tnterjeoUoaVand -sosistlme* 
very strprrg Inngnage. Andvatla»t-up he-got 
and went over to the window where his desk 
stood, and from a locked compartment took a 
small vial with a curious stopper. ' Borne 
liquid quite white, like water, this vessel held, 
and he measured a quantity ot it bv a tea- 
spoon In a glass, and, qualifying It with water, 
drank it off. A solution of morphia, I sap- 
pose It was, whioh he had originally used for 
headache, and a good deal oftener, perhaps, of 
late for pain of another sort. The drug was 
quieting; and now, lazily, he undressed and 
got himself to bed. 

Krs. Thurlow had formerly assisted her hus- 
band as writing-mistress In the early days of 
the "Academy for Toung Gentlemen," and was 
considered an eminent authority on penman- 
ship, and even professed, I believe, a know- 
ledge of the more abstruse science of autogra- 
ihy. as it la called, or judgment of the oharao- 
er by the handwriting. Bhe avowed that, as 
with some people, a face once seen Is never 
forgotten, so was handwriting by her. 

One afternoon, several days after the arrival 
of Captain Northgate's letter, Mrs. Thurlow, 
sitting with Rhoda, suddenly asked to see that 
composition again. 

The Doctor had gone out riding, his custom 
always In the afternoon, and the two ladies 
were quite alone. ' 

Rhoda produced the letter, and It was at- 
tentively read and commented on for the twen- 
tieth time, and Mrs. Thurlow, Inspecting It 
oare fully once more in sHenoe, said : 

"Written, yon see, in a great hurry, and not 
In his usual hand. I should hardly take the 
penmanship for Captain Northgate's" — she 
spoke of him as Cyril no more— "exoept for 
the cramped and straggling formation of his 
characters. Have you any other specimens of 
his writing?" - • 

In' the mnslo-book there was a song, the 
words of whioh he had oopled for Rhoda from 
the original in the hands of a young lady at 
the theatre. 

"A very marked difference, yon observe," 
pursued Mrs. Thurlow, comparing the two 
specimens, "but at the same time a general re- 
semblance. This letter Is written in a decid- 
edly tremulous hand — can't you detect a cer- 
tain agitation In the loops and ourves?" 

"I doubt notwithstanding, whether he was 
in a very violent state of agitation," laughed 
Rhoda. "Simply a shaklness of the nerves 
from bad hours and had habits of all kinds." 

"It cost him a pang to write this letter. 
Rhoda, and I shall never believe differently," 
retorted Mrs. Thurlow Impressively. "When 
a person writes a letter In a style of oallgraphy 
so very different from what is usually employ- 
ed that it is scarcely recognizable, I maintain 
that there Is decided mental agitation." 

"I dont know, I am sure: but It Is all over, 
and I am very glad," said Rhodaquietly. "Oh I 
here Is papa,'' and she rose as the old-fashion- 
ed vehiole, almost In the style of a doctor's 
gig.dtove up to the gate. 

"There -la someone with him, I think," said 
Mrs. Thurlow. peering ont curiously; "and 
what can your father mean? He Is tying the 
horse to the post'' 

Rhoda had gone to the other window, from 
which post of observation she saw Dr. Thur- 
low carefully descend from the gig, followed 
imm ediately by another' person— a ngure she 
recognized, with something like a shock— for 
It was aharles Bavenswood^ •■ - .• t- 

'Who can It possibly be, dear?" Inquired 
Mrs. Thurlow, anxiously - inspecting the 
stranger. "How very distinguished-looking. 
If Doctor Thurlow expected anyone to' Sea, It 
is singular he did not Inform me." . ■ ' 
The two gentlemen came up the little gravel- 
ed walk, the Doctor In advanoe, and disappear- 
ed together tinder the hooded poroh, and a 
second afterwards were heard in the nalL 

They were in the room. Bhoda through a 
mist saw the tall form of ' Ravenswood and his - 
singularly handsome face; and In her" ears 
sounded the confused murmur ot the Doctor's 
introduction— all like a dream. 
' ' "Beally saved my life," she heard her father 
say more distinctly, as she gradually returned ' 
to herself. "Old Darby, you know — safe and 
gentle as a house-dog, . I always thought— I 
should have trusted him anywhere— it Is really 
a nnftftmHintnft 1 "; I cant. Imagine what 
came over him. I never was bo frightened — 
my heart is beating yet I certainly owe Mr. 
Bavenswood my life. 

. . "The children In the road startled Mm," 
said Bavenswood in bis inexpressibly sweet 
and gen tig tones. "There was a boy beating a 
drum, juu ujayi remember." _ 

"ggadl-T T s V s uj , aa usual. In a reverie, and re- 
memW/nttrdng exoept that Old Darby, as 
sober as myself the Instant before, suddenly 
reared and bolted away with me, Jerking the 
reins out of my hand. An earthquake could 
hardly have been more sarprisiAg. 

So he told the story of the runaway more In 
detail, by whioh it appeared that-Bavanswood, 
opportunely In the neighborhood, had cour- 
ageously rushed Into the road and seized "Old 
Darby" just at the- point when that hitherto, 
faithful animal was about to toss his master 
out of the gig Jnto a ditch. 
.' :r dare say. nothing more serious than a good 
ghaklng>up and oonousslon would have fol- 
lowiad/had the horse succeeded, Bavenswood 
pooh-poohed his exploit. 'But Dootor Thur-

low, naturally timid, was confoundedly fright- 
ened, and looked upon his escape from a hor- 
rible death as simply miraculous. 

Mrs. Thurlow received the flrst mention ot 
Bavenswood's name a little stiffly; bnt, the 
story of the Doctor's misadventure having 
been related, she thanked his rescuer honestlv 
and warmly. In truth, it was impossible not 
to be Impressed with the actor's appearance — 
so handsome and highbred — and he so modest- 
ly deprecated all claims to any acknowledg- 
ment, and he spoke so gently and even sadly ; 
and. In shortvery few minutes had slipped by 
before Mrs. Thurlow oame to the conclusion 
that he was, beyond all question, the most at- 
tractive person she had ever met She had al- 
ways entertained her own notions about theat- 
rical people— a mysterious tribe, like the gipsies 
— subjects for speculation, but not presentable 
or to be cultivated. ' Bavenswood had shivered 
that theory. 

All this while Bhoda had not uttered a word, 
nor had she met the actor's glance, and yon 
would have said they had never been before 
aware of each other's existence. In the first 
shook of the surprise she was, perhaps, a little 
lrlghtened; but now a faint smile flickered 
across her face, and she began to perceive the 
humorous phase ot the situation. 

"Ton will stay to tea with us, Mr. Bavens- 
wood?" said Mrs. Thurlow hospitably. "I In- 

He murmured something about duties at the 
theatre; but the lady pinned him closely, and 
he was obliged to admit that he was not to act 
that evening. Thus It happened that he re- 
mained and drank tea with the Doctor's family, 
and over that nectar made himself agreeable 
upon many subjects. It was hardly avlodnble 
that the unlucky toplo of Northgato should 
come np, although Bavenswood tried to elude 
Mrs. Thorlow's Inquiries with all the dexterity 
of which he was master. 

"You were very mtlroate with him, Xr. Ra- 
venswood, were yon not?"- • 

"He was, strictly speaking, more intimate 
with me," said he. "I thought I knew all his 
secrets, such as they were; but events have 
shown differently.". 

. He exhibited the Captain's letter, whioh Mrs. 
Thurlow examined curiously and commented 
on. Here, again, she avowed a discovery of a 
marked ohange in the absentee's handwriting, 
showing thathe was, as she vaguely expressed 
It, under olrcu instances of great mental agita- 
tion. ■ 

"Under duress, you think ?s. Inquired her

say a few graceful words In defense of his pro- 
fession. . :iL1<- ■■

performed a duet together. . ,

how muoh we of- modern soolety owe the

ealof aurioular torture. at the hands of gen- 
erally well-meaning but mistaken 1 performers

compensation which keeps up the balance of 
existence and makes It endurable? Under the 
rumble and thunder of the bass pedal, what 
Important oonfldenoeB, otherwise impossible 
tn a crowded room, are successfully exchang- 
ed? Half the details of modern love-making 
are conducted over the keyboard. Two peo- 
ple oooupylng this point of vantage, be the 
throng never so great, are, while always under 
the general eye, as comfortably Isolated as 
they might be anywhere on earth : and so im- 
pressions are. made, understandings arrived 
at, quarrels compounded, and the whole busi- 
ness of courtship carried on. 

It is not to be supposed that . Bavenswood 
and Miss Thurlow, with their seonst between 
them, oould accept the accident of late whioh, 
contrary to anything that at least one of them 

had ever dreamed, had thus b r ooj tnt them to- 
gether, free to be friendly, without experienc- 
ing a wish to exobange vlewB Upon so ex- 
traordinary a circumstance, not-even a look 
had passed between them so fs* tholr 
formal introduction both, as w&Asflow, had 
loved like strangers: Now, howfcvex, the mo- 
ment had arrived when the constraint and un- 
certainty of the previous 8ltnatton-must,lnone 
way or another, be dissolved. -.• 
. "Ton have caused me a great deaji'of suffer- 
ing this evening," said Bfioda In a< low voice, 
while she played and he sang. "I' feel a con- 
tempt for mvself that I can hardly express. 
Could anything be more degrading than the 
rolel have been playing— pretending never to 
have seen you before?" 

"What could I do?" he said a moment later, 
when It was her turn to bear the burden of 
their performance. "It was your place to have 
recognized me— yon must allow that in justice. 
I did not wish to come; bnt your father in- 
sisted, and placed what he was pleased to con- 
sider hiSjObligatlon to me in saoh a light that 
to have refused would have been -simply In- 
sult Ton surely cannot think that I would 
willingly Inflict pain upon yon of any kind." 

"Well, you know at nest ot what hypocrisy 
I am capable. It is all very curious ; and I 
suppose you remember what Isald the last 
time we saw each other— about removing poor 
papa's prejudices." v~ 

"I remember every word you Mgfar spoke to 
me, Miss Thurlow," said BaTenswood sin- 
cerely. A: - 

"Very little worth the trouble; fm afraid. 
But, regarding papa's prejudloef /Fthlnk they 
are effectually removed— manuna^ also— and, 
unless you dislike us all very muoh, this wilt 
not be your last visit here. We owe you papa's 
life." . ; ^

. .. CHAPTER IS.— aitr^nb. ' 
It was quite eleven wheaJRayfihewood . bade 
good-night and withdrew fxfnifflijB hospitable 
old Doctor's cottage ; time haUIMed by insen- 
sibly. The aotor was In better warltB than for 
a long time. Never had he spehln pleasanter 
evening. The Doctor hirnsaK.Bo, learned * 
genial, simple, most deUghtfnl ouedagoguee ; 
his wife, so wise a matrou' and-vo ladylike; 
and Miss Thurlow— Rhoda— so XeautUu), so 
oharming, so near perfection iai everything. 
Ravenswood was, in faot, qafcWtrosy over his 
good luofc Everything lid, - dpm« -about so 
happUy-he had never daBmnd.-and now, 
how would It end? A shadow oxnesed him for 
a minute— sinister and nialtafasttt-^md in the 

starlight something almost ltte; a Boowl dis- 
torted his handsome features; bte-frlenus of a 
white ago would have been startled at that 
aspect, but it was only for a moment The 
one beautiful Image in his mind filled Iteo 
completely that nothing unrffiasaht oould in- 
trude there long. ; * .-, . . 

A little up the street he cUsoerned a figure 
oomlng towards him that he kuew^Xoe Butts 
Another time and in a . different mood he would 
haveavoided. poor Joe ; but ndVhe was glad 

there not that amblguc^-«jr3t,of the other

-Where have you been and where are you going? 
How did the play go off to-night? And how 
was the house?" 

Joe sulked a little and replied dryly; but 
Ravenswood was not to bo put off ao. His own 
spirits were so exuberant toat he soon rallied 
the comedian Into good humor also, and In a 
minute or two that honest fellow dismissed his 
grudge and linked his arm In his companion's 
very amicably. 

"You must go with me to my rooms, Joe. I 
want someone to talk to. When did you hear 
from Bella?" 

Joe winced, and Bavenswood felt his own 
arm tremble ; but he said quietly 

"Sue does -not write to -me. Of course, yon 
know we had a — a disagreement" 

'.'How. should I know? Tou dont imagine 
that she writes to me either,- Joe? Don't mind 
the disagreement: women love to keep up a 
mysterious, smouldering quarrel with a fellow 
they like. Ill read yon something from a book 
about that" 

Bavenswood let himself in -with a latoh-key, 
and they went up to his rooms together, where 
he answered the welcome ot his terrier, lighted 
a lamp and produced some refreshments. 

"They enjoy a lover's misery," he oontlnued, 
going to the bookcase and taking down a 
small volume. "Listen I it Is Hons Oruter 
who said this," and emlUog, a little sarcastic- 
ally It may be, he read : 

"I knew she loved me, for we never met 
without a quarrel. The morning she slapped 
my face filled the measure of my bliss, for 
then I saw that, she could not control her feel- 
ings for me. With women, love Is like the 
Idol worship of an Indian, tribe; at the mo- 
ment their hearts are bursting with devotion 
they like to cut and wound and maltreat their 
god. With them; this Is the ecstaoy of their 

With the same sardonlo smilo on his hand- 
some face, he replaoed the book and came to 
the fire and aat down before it with his bonds 
In his pockets, and for some tune, while he 
mused thus, there was a silence. 

"Yes. women— girls, I mean, of oourse— are 
mysterious oreatures, Bavenswood," said Joe, 
who very dimly comprehended the metaphysics 
just read for nls benefit; "bnt so are men — 
some men, at least Now, I never understood 
jouquite.":. - ... ., i

way of friendship. There la another— not a 
being of earth, but A spirit afar — — " '. . r. 

And he sang a snatoh of song, wild and sacjk 
-addressed to an Ideal love. His mood ohangad- 
when he had finished, and he sald rather bit- 
terly: • 

"We. all .follow phantoms, Joe; and, by the 
way, that reminds me — how are your supernat- 
ural investigations progressing?''. , 
. The comedian rustled in his seat uncomfort- 
ably and smiled shyly. . ■ : - > 
- :"*on awlU-. think It ridiculous, of course. 
E^vsmsaroDdv" he said ; . "bnt I really have had:

"Indeed?" ? ... 

: -iCLaat night, I assure you, after/the perform- 
ance I was not very sleepy, andil^vislted the 
neighborhood of -the hanntedtnilLon the Glade- 
water." • - 

Bavenswood' tod been poking the fire, and 
he stopped abruptly with a «ha¥p "Ah 1" 

"I was' there -atone; and ;lt" was after twelve 
o'clocf.'andl «s»ureyod that I saw lights and 
figures.- -Toft 'wBl think me a fool; but that 
old bnfldlnff fs haunted Just as they say." 

"Haunted by rats." - . . . . . 

"I swear I saw lights moving by the win- 
do ws, and twice heard a very strange, unearth- 
ly ory, and once the form of a man uame to 
the low door below, with a torch In his hand; 
and stood there for over a minute— jus I euoh a 
person as Dangerfleld Is described to have 

"Tou were frighteued, I suppose?'' 
• :.*,'I— well, of oourse,. I left a -little queer; 
there was not a soul about, and the' night was 
-very dark, andyooknow ttis the'most dismal' 
spot on earth.":- : 

Bavenswood returned the poker to its corner 
and leaned back; refleotlng; but he did hot 
seem to "be In' quite the'same good "humor. - , 
. "If. you really did see what. yon. describe,, 
and it was notalllmaglnRtion/'lie said, "there* 
Is only 'one- explanation— you saw human 
beings— tramps ot rufflans Of some kind: J.

mill -does - not- rent or lease it'to someone. ' I 


by no means snob a ruin, aa I had been led to 
suppose, and a very little would put It in prop- 
er oendltion." ' ' 
"He oould never find a tenant" 
"No trouble on that score, believe me. It is 
just this — some clever rogues have a snug nest 
there, and keep up the bad reputation of the 
plaoe by that very old device of making noises 
atnlght and showing lighted Xet the owner 
psxta tenant there. otTthe" right sort, and. I 
ratter think your.ghoste,- Joe, wiU oeaae to 
show up." 4r r ' ■ ■■■ 

am. not the only one who has seen queer 
things there. A fellow driving past a- few 
nights ago saw— and he is' willing to swear it— ; 
old Dangerfleld and tbeyoung officer himself." 

"What young -officer?" asked Ravenswood 
sharply, and Joe fancied that he looked rather 
paler than usual. 

"The British ofuoer who was murdered there 
—dont you recollect the story? His body, 
some eay, was buried In the cellar. A mur- 
dered man would not be likely to rest quietly 
in a grave like that" - . 
- "You are a fool, if you believe such stuff as 
that " said Bavenswood roughly. "It's'all a 
lie— a villainous lie," and he, not used to swear- 
ing; blurted out a round oath, such as consid- 
erably startled his companion- - 

"But this.fellow the other night— a farmer, 
you knowr'from the up-country — swears that 
he saw.the ghost of the officer— a pale, slight 
delicate young man— a tan ding near the mill In 
the moonlight". > . - .■:*..-» 

"It's not true, I tell yon,". retorted . Bavens- 
wood violently. "The Idea of a rational man 
like you believing any snoh rubbish 1 I dont 
know what to think of you. Butts." 

H e seemed to be In one of bis tempers, and 
struck the arm of his ohair violoosly. 

"There's no. use in getting angry about It" 
said Joe. "Borne people have a constitutional 
tendency towards the marvelous, as doctors 
will tell you, and I suppose I am one of them. 
I cant help believing that a murdered man 
will come back after death and denounce bis 
assassin. I would do it myself* . . 
"But It can't be done." 
"Well, why dont you go there some night 
and Investigate-far yourself?" 

"Not 1 1 I am not anxious to be knocked on 
the head for my money — or— or that kind of 
thing; and if you are wise yon will keep away 
too, my good fellow. Lots of dangerous char- 
acters about this neighborhood ; they were 
speaking or It at Potters yesterday. I never 
bad the fancy of some people for prowling In 
strange places late at night" 
Joe smiled. 

"Some say differently, Ravenswood. The old 
woman, you know"— and he nodded upward— 
"what Is her name?— Mrs. Dobbles— says, you 
keep np bonis at all." 

_. "Curse that woman 1" and Ravenswood did 
onrse her vehemently. "Ill leave these lodg- 
ings— 111 move' to-morrow. Tou never could' 
think of suoh lies as she Is constantly telling 
about me." 

He rose and began striding up and down the 
floor, raining anathemas upon his landlady, 
somnolent above, and peacefully unconscious 
of the dreadful things he Invoked upon her. 
Bnt the gust blew over presently, and he re- 

«•"■""* "»*M' -- , 

"Folry unworthy- oT ehudren7 Joe," he eatct 
"to believe In suoh stories/and yon wfU find 

yourself In a - very ' ridiculous position a

certainly dont believe the victim oould come 
back to tell ot It The time U when a man's 
brains are ont the man is dead, and that's the 
end of him. 1 ' 

A little longer they talked, and Joe told some 
of his beet authenticated ghost-stories, and 
related several out of Sir waiter Scott and 
other histories of this sort of lore. Ravens- 
wood listened— rather impatiently. It seemed— 
certainly he was not impressed. 
' They parted kindly, and Bavenswood ac- 
companied his guest to the door with a light, 
and stood there for a minute or two .watching 
him until he had melted Into the distant shad- 
ows of the street 

"A good-natured little fool," soliloquized 
Ravenswood as he ran up the stairs again. 
"All fools are good-natured, they eay — and 

He had a letter to write whioh might not be 
postponed, and, Immediately getting out- bis 
materials, he Indited -that composition,- whioh 
was brief and to the following effect : 

Mr Dear BzLiiA. — So far aU Is well. Every- 
thing has been accepted without question, and I 
have not bad the least Inquietude until this even- 
ing, and that only momentary. Joe Butts was 
here a little while ago, and told me something 
about Oladewater Mill being haunted— lights and 
people being seen there at night, etc Bat there 
is no real necessity. Lam sore, to- feel disturbed. 
The secret burled there will not be revealed. Who 
would have a motive to unearth It} Idle ouiioslty 
might do mischief; bnt I shall take effectual 
measures to prevent accident Suspicion there Is 
none, so accident is all that we need provide 
against What Is hidden from the light Is sate. 
Aa I have already several times directed, remain 
passive, and trust me as I trust you. Tou' seem 
lobe growing Impatient; bat that most be con- 
quered. - Walt only a little longer, and you shall 
be free., Devotedly yours, b. 

He sealed this la an envelope and locked It 
in his desk. Then he returned to his chair be- 
fore the fire, and dawn, found him there still, 
enjoying a waking dream, whioh he had begun 
to believe lately might, after all, hot be so Im- 
possible as It had once seemed.

Lady Clara would persist in driving a patrol 1

"She wants a man who Is her master," he said, 
for Misa Lydla had basely betrayed this senti-

Lady Clara was more bored at Brighton than in,

Hot printed brie syllable to lead one to suppose 
ahe deetrod to retain ttrrcer%U In It." This U Mi. 
Beaded plea. Italics and all. 

It tnay hie true that there Is no earthly reason— 
or shall we aay legal ceaaonr— why an J^igllsh-. 
man may not dramatize an American etory. We 
apeak thus ot "That Lass o' Lowrta's," becauxe 
It was written, printed and copyrighted tn Amer- 
ica, and because Urn, Burxrect, although an 
KngHthwoman by birth, achlered her flnt llt- 
arary distinction In this oountry. Undeniably 
Charles Beade waa at liberty to make a play out 
ot the story, if he so chose. He had the right to 
do it— legally. He could bring It out at any 
TingllnTi theatre— legally. He could profit by the 
brains of another, and' share' the receipts of the 
box-office— legally. But— but la thla the Oharlea 
Beade who, not very long ago, uncorked the vials 
of his -vituperative wrath and poured their vitri- 
olic contents upon the heads ot all thieves who 
atole the products of other men's brains? lathis 
the Charles Beade who, ln announcing his dram- 
atisation ot thla very story, advertised that he 
would give a handsome reward to any person 
who would "give him tamely notice ot piracy"— 
empbsndsed with a big PT Is this the Charles 
Beade who. In a prefatory note to the American 
edition ot "Pnt Yosttialf la His Plans" (we hay* 
not a copy ot the book at hand, bat we quote his 
worda as -nearly as wa can from memory), said 
that he hoped all . reputable pub llshen In this 
oountry ' would respect the moral right which 
Messrs. Sheldon ft Co. had acquired by paying 
him liberally for the advanoe-aheeta ot his story T 
It this, indeed, be the same Charles Beade, then 
either time haa wrought ln him a marvelona 
change, or else that which we mistook for honest 
warfare against literary piracy was, ln fact, noth- 
ing more than the explosion of a very noisy 
blank -cartridge. 

But the author ot "A Simpleton" endeavors, ln 
his letter, to draw a sharp line between copy- 
right and'atagertght. He would have it appear 
that there Is no piracy about stealing the mater- 
ial for an acting drama. Legally he la right, so 
longaa tho drama, lnqneetlon le acted ln England. 
But what are the tacts in this case? Mrs. Frances 
Hodgson Burnett wrote a etory which achieved— 
and deserved— amatlng success. This story 
straightway reprinted ln London, and not long 
afterwards was adapted to the stage, intact, 
three verelona had been advertised (and two ot 
them performed) In England before Mr. Beade 
took the matter ln hand. With characteristic 
modesty he explains ln tils letter that he should 
not have undertaken the task if the other drama- 
ttstahad shown themselves capable of dealing 
with the subject. Having so tar condescended 
aa to take hold of this story and dramatize 
it, as It should be dramattzed, air. Beade 
pro c eeds te sell to an American actress the 
right to play his version ot an American 
story ln America I And he coolly writes to 
the author of that story : "Ho egg can be roasted 
all on one side. I cannot be divinely Just to 
American citizens in a boalneas where they 
never show me one grain of human Justice 
or even mercy; and so long as your nation 
Is a literary thief you must expect occasional 
reprisals. These reprisals are a sort of bad 
equity." Let It be remembered that this noble 
sentiment la expressed by the ehivalrlo cham. 
plon of the moral rights ot authors. But 
these are not all the tacts. Mrs. Burnett not 
only wrote, published and copyrighted "That 
Lass o' Lowrle's" in this country, but she re- 
served all stagerlghts, dramattzed her own novel, 
and copyrighted that dramatization. Mr. Beade 
closes his letter to Br. Burnett by asserting that 
ln the United States, as ln England, there Is 
no such thing as stagerlght ln a novel. Edu 
cated Londoners have been known to Inquire 
whether New-Torkera live exclusively on thi 
buffaloes which thez kill . In the streets, 01 , 
whether our diet is occasionally varied by the In- 
troduction ot a boiled papoose. We do not look 
to resident Englishmen generally tor a very com' 
prahenalve knowledge of America; but we con- 
fess to a certain degree ot surprise at «tmin g a 
writer ot Mr. Beade's posltlveness proclaiming 
his ignorance of our laws with such aelt-satlsned 
assurance; Doubtless he will learn. If he did 
not long ago know, that ln the United States there 
Is such a thing as stagerlght ln a novel, and, 
moreover, when that right la Infringed on, there 
is a law to punish the offender. So far aa we are 
able to learn, no exception to thla law Is made ln 
favor of Mr. Charles Beade, novelist. 

Very properly, Mrs. Burnett took It upon her- 
self to reply to the letter addressed to her hus- 
band. Her answer cannot fall to prove racy 
reading to Mr. Beade. She says, among other 
things, that some time ago she wrote a letter to 
the novelist requesting him to dramatize her 
story for England, but afterwards decided not to 
send It. "I wish I had now," she adds, "because 
then I might have retained an Illusion or eo. 
The keen but delicate irony of that sentence Is 
worthy of Its author. We have no doubt It will 
be appreciated by Mr. Beade. The author ot 
"Foul Play" tells us he Is a dramatist, and that 
nothing but bad laws ever drove him Into the 
novel. It that la so, let us thank bad laws. Mr. 
Beade should be Judged by the same rules which 
are applied to other men. We certainly have no 
desire to belittle his literary achievements. He 
has written some ot the best novels of the day. 
The crisp, bright style of his earlier works 
was a sort ot revelation. The trenchant tone 
of some ot hie later books effected reforms 
which Parliament had failed to accomplish. 
Perhaps he Is greater even as a dramatist than as 
a novelist; but If that be so, it seems a little odd 
that he should be forced to find material for his 
plays ln the brain-product of other writers. 
Greatness ln a dramatist Is the power to create, 
not to adapt. However, while we admire Mr. 
Beade's talents, we hold that he had no moral 
right to make use of Mrs. Burnstt's story without 
first consulting that lady ; and he had no legal 
right to sell his version of a play which had al- 
ready been copyrighted ln this oountry. As for 
the letter which be addressed to Sr. Burnett, we 
can only repeat what we said at the outset : If 
Mr. Charles Beade were not a novelist of repute 
we should, arter reading that letter, be tempted 
to apply to him some one of the polite epithets 
which he Is continually applying to other people.

Jocko, a 98s) badger, and a bull-terrier answering to the 
name ot Prince, nearly ten pounds heavier, whose owners 
had matched them for S20D, three polls out or fin, each 
of ten minutes' duration. The teak undertaken by thadow 
was the pulling of his badgershlp thronith the half moori- 
sh aped bole In one end or a box with a sloping roof, whleh 
he succeeded ln doing at the first and third baits only, the 
badger at tbe fifth trial fastening his long, sharp teeth 
firmly ln the throat and windpipe of the canine, whose 
owner, perceiving that he coold not get loose, gave op in 
order to save Prince's lire. Jocko, who lookeoTabout as 
wall aa at first, was therefore hailed tbe winner, but tha 
owner of the badly-used-up Prince expressed hiswllllnx- 
neaj to enter Into another match. . .

on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 9, and were wit-

ot the houses overlooking the grounds, which 
afforded an excellent view without the payment 
of a farthing. The management waa fair, but

CXIOAOO. ILL.. Nov. 8. 1878, 
Faaatt Qtraacv, Esq.— zasao- 51r.- I wish to state a few 
jaeu In connection with the 80-mlle walk given ben last 
Wednesday. Nov. a, at Use Bxpaaltloa BuUdlng. far the 
benefit of the Boon of the Good Shepherd. The executive 
committee or the lair fart tha mattar in the bands ot Dan- 
lalO'Lsary. Toe prl res were a medal and ago to flnt, eao 
to second, as to third, S13 to fourth. The eo tries ware Jim 
Smith, Oea Ouyon. O'Leary, Olmstead, Ruaaell, Roach, 
Bohmehl,and two ambitions novices, who petered outsoon 
after the start. Boasell quit at 17 miles, and Roach at 19 
miles. Schmeblled from the sun by deliberately running, 
although Tanzey, referee, cautioned the men at the start 
that any running or skipping would disqualify the 
patty so doing. Then wen over 1,000 people pres- 
ent, and a general protest waa raited against Schmehl 
ronnina; but Scbmebl's jndga— Peter Odlln— In Tan- 
say's absence said that Schmehl waa walking fair; but, 
when Tar. rev returned, he went on the track, and 
told Schmehl he would take him off If he did notstop. He 
then started on a run, and, in spite of tbe protests from 
the crowd, continued to run. Tbe plan was to beat Smith 
out of first prize. Ouyon, Bmltb and Olmstead again pro- 
tested sgalnst Schmehl, but Tanzey told tbem to go on and 
not mind, aa Schmabl waa oat ol the walk ; yet at tbe con- 
clusion of the match Tanzey eneaked oB and O'Leary 
awarded the first prize to Schmehl. A general cry of In- 
dignation was made against the ruling, as O'Leary had 
no right In the world to award any prizes, as be was a con- 
testant and a badly-osed-op one at that, Ooyoa bolng only 
10 seconds behind him at the finish. We measured the 
track next morning, and tound It SOD yards over length In 
tbe 60 miles, and it waa very heavy, as it was only 
finished twenty mlnnteo before the start. O'Leary wrote a 
letter to Dr. Dunn, the holder or the medal, telling him to 

Sn It to Sehmehl, and Dunn did as directed. The Execn. 
ve Commlctce last night met and passed resolutions con- 
demning O'Leary. and Jndges fjculley and Morrison and 
Alderman Daly wen appointed to get np a medal and 
award Smith first prize, and present blm with a testi- 
monial, stating that Smith won (airly. I will send yon a 
statement mm the papers, as tbe matter to not yet ended, 
and O'Leary haa lost a gnat many friends by his action.

The time la at hand whan the reports from the secretaries 
or scorers of dabs of the International championship 
arena, cvrlna the fleldiDc atarlstlcs or their respective 
fielders, will be doe at this office, ihese returns being re- 
quired In order that we mar award the cold badges for the 
best play in each ot the nine positions or the frame. The 
conditions froveminfc the award ot these nine prises were 
pablished ln onr lame ol laarch 30 last, and ther 
should be strictly abided by, in order to present a 
record which will enable the dub-player* to be 
eligible ror tbe award of any ot tbe prlzea Thus, for 
instance, ln the estimate of chances to pat p Layers ont 
by assistance, no credit Is to be allowed a pitcher for a 
fleldlng a s si stan ce In the case or a batsman being- pot oat 
on strikes; nor Is an error tn be charred to the pitcher 
when a batsman takes hla base on called balls. The olne 
prizes will be awarded on the basis ot tbe best araraxe or 
percentage of ehancea to pnt players ont by fielding ae- 
ceeted trom all tbe chances offered. The prire- banner 
offered la now In thla office, and raadr to be awarded to 
tbe dab winning the International championship .

coeo Tribune Nor. 3 to tbe effect that tha Milwaukee Club 
had not been paid In full, and eoneeqnentlv would not be 
npruented ln tbe League next yea<. Is entirely without 
foundation. Every member of tne dub haa been par ' '

lated his contract by refusing to play when ordered, and
